wedding make-up

Real Bride, Aime

One of my many christmas brides, Aime, got married at Oxwich Bay Hotel this December and I've just received these lovely images from John Wellings Photography. Aime opted for a very natural, classic bridal look for herself and two bridesmaids.

Real Bride, Cerian

Back in the summer I had the pleasure of doing Cerians make-up for her big day as well as her bridesmaids and Mum... Here are a few images from the day. Cerian wanted emphasis on the eyes with a neutral lip and fresh, glowing skin.

Real Bride, Laura

I've just received these gorgeous images of Lauras wedding morning, photographed by Maria Farrelly. I spent the morning in Cowbridge getting Laura, her bridesmaids and her Mum ready for the big day. Laura and the girls wanted glowing skin and a natural, classic bridal make-up. I love Lauras wedding dress from Stephanie Allin Bridal, stunning! x

Natural Bridal Make-Up

Last post covering a recent photoshoot for a bridal house in Swansea. This make-up look is natural and a classic look for a bride, particularly someone who wears no or minimal make-up.

Key points for this look:

Light base colour correcting any blemishes.

Emphasized the natural brow with brow gel.

Enhanced eyes with individual lashes and a light brown shadow.

Please get in touch if you'd like to book wedding make-up or make-up for a special occasion.

Vintage Wedding Make-Up Before & After

'Vintage' is very popular for weddings, whether its a vintage dress, accessory or make-up.

Its great to be able to take different influences from each decade and adapt them to suit each client and event. Be it a 1940's soft coral lip and small flick eyeliner or 1950's bold red lip with a strong black flick and extended lashes, a personal favourite is the 1920's, a soft smokey eye and deep plum lip.

I recently did a photo shoot for a bridal collection and have some behind the scenes images and steps involved in achieving an adapted 1920's look, enjoy x

Bridal Make-Up Trial Swansea

Here are a few snaps from a trial earlier today with gorgeous bride-to-be, Sophie.

Sophie wanted lots of lashes, which we achieved by building individual lashes so that they still looked very natural with a soft flick, some natural contouring with flawless skin and a pink/nude lip.
